Cover of Jul/Aug 2013 issue - National Geographic Traveller (UK)
  • Cover Story: Mad for the Med – our writers reveal the hidden coves, pristine beaches and deserted mountain trails that make them passionate about the vast and varied Mediterranean.
  • Destinations: Discover secluded jungle trails on a journey through Thailand’s Khao Sok National Park; hop on a bike and ride past giant blue butterflies and macaws along Costa Rica’s west coast; and travel to the Austrian cities of Linz and Graz — where there’s not a whiff of The Sound of Music kitsch. Plus Taipei and Marseille city guides.
  • Real Life: Discover Berlin with the help of a local; and set sail for high seas adventures.
